Seasonal albums are all part and parcel of being a recording artist in Scandinavia and two times Swedish Eurovision entrant Charlotte Perrelli is no exception. Not only does she have the annual Christmas present list to take care of, but she’s also working hard on promoting her upcoming album, due for release next month.
Hits such as The Girl and Hero have been stashed away like a summer jacket, and Charlotte Perrelli has put on her winter coat, in the form of her latest album, Min BarndomsJul (My Childhood Christmas), which has been given a release date for the 20th of November. The album will be given both a physical and digital release, and during the coming week fans will be able to place a preorder for a signed edition of the album.
Min BarndomsJul will feature thirteen seasonal tracks and two of Perrelli’s children, Angelo and Alessio have also helped their mum out on her latest project by contributing vocals, something she is extremely proud about. According to the singer, she wanted to give the album a personal title because it is "just about as christmassy as it gets. I love the old, traditional kind of Christmas music, which haasn’t been messed around with in any way. It reminds me of childhood and that’s why I chose to call the album Min BarndomsJul." Excerpts from the forthcoming album will be published on her blog during the next few days.
